Harvey Weinstein attends the 89th Annual Academy Awards on February 26, 2017, in Hollywood.

Los Angeles prosecutors are reviewing three accusations of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein, a step towards possible criminal charges for the movie producer, a spokesman for the county District Attorney's office said on Thursday.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment and abuse, including rape, by multiple, often high-profile women, but he has yet to be charged with any crime.

Weinstein has not commented on the latest development but has in the past denied any "non-consensual sex" took place over the years.

British police are investigating sexual misdeed claims brought by nine women against Weinstein, according to various media reports.

Variety reported that the District Attorney's office is also looking into two other cases against Weinstein that were submitted by the Beverly Hills Police Department.

The cases involving Weinstein have been forwarded to that task force, Risling said in an email.

District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in November she had created a specialized task force in her office to evaluate cases of "sexual abuse in the entertainment industry".

The Weinstein scandal also unleashed a deluge of allegations against other powerful men in entertainment, politics and the media, forcing many industries to re-examine workplace policies.

Weinstein's studio, Miramax, was behind such projects as the 1994 film "Pulp Fiction" and the "Project Runway" television series.
